Raiders is an all abilities club with a focus on boys and girls who live or go to school in Berkhamsted and Northchurch. We provide football for over 1,300 boys and girls in our 94 youth teams.
As a result of our continued success, we attract more players than we can provide places for. We have waiting lists for some age groups but can offer training only places where we do not have capacity in match day squads or for children who may not be ready yet to play in competitive matches.
Raiders accepts players who may have been told by other clubs that they are “not good enough”. We are an all abilities club that believes that every child should be given the opportunity to participate in sport.
